Perk up your love life with Gosset Grand Rose
The wine tasted this episode and where you can buy –
Also available from Fortnum & Mason.
Hi my name’s Rebecca Dunphy with the perfect wine to spice up your love life. Call me fussy, but it would be positively unromantic if ‘he’ turned up with some cheap pink fizz. I want quality Champagne and believe me the best wine to perk up your love life is romance fuelled Gosset Grand Rosé.
You won’t find it in the supermarkets because their production is too small – just over a million bottles a year to Möet et Chandon’s 30 million a year. It’s one of the oldest Champagne houses and it’s been perfecting its art since 1584.
This is a wine with great pulling-power – just look at the curvy bottle, the colour a rose petal pink, the fizz like ribbons rising in the glass. The aromas are fresh and sweet like wild strawberries, warm brioche and peaches. She’ll be swooning before she’s even tasted it.
Then drink, ‘together’ of course – its rich mellow, lively, strawberries and cherries crushed and perfumed, the bubbles velvety, fresh….just divine.
Pair this wine with breakfast in bed – whether it’s bacon and eggs or an omlette d’amour this wine will give her something worth staying in bed for.
It’s fantastic with the luxuriousness of smoked salmon or trout. Better still treat her to a romantic supper of freshly caught fish. And for carnivorous lovers, lamb with a tinge of pink is sublime with this very special Champagne.
Enjoy your wine in the bedroom!
